Telephone lines were torn down in the path of the storm. The houses of G. P. Ful-??, J. L. Ennis and one or two others were blown away. The tornado was preceded by a heavy ????. Considerable damage to gardens and young corn is reported north of Alba along the ???? of Lake Fork Creek. – Fort Worth, TX Fort Worth Star-Telegram, April 15, 1921, Page 13.
